There's a few on eBay?

I have bought the boys version the last 2 years and I think they are worth it tbh. There is a 15% off with free delivery and returns kicking about.

I agree, they are worth it. Ditto re the discount codes above, plus you can still eBay it onwards once outgrown. I buy them each a new one every autumn plus then a 'garden' one from eBay for wet and muddy play. consequently the new ones remain pristine!

They are lovely and warm with space for layers underneath but, alas, they are not waterproof...only showerproof. DD2 had the puffy parka type coat from boden last year, now that is waterproof smile

ok ordered it at about 7pm last night and already had an email saying it has been despatched, could get used to that kind of service.

Also joining the "worth it" camp. Bought one for dd 2y ago in the sale and it still fits her, and is in perfect condition. The hood is particularly good.

Bought her the next size up but it's huge, so in the wardrobe .... but I know she's good for the next couple of winters at least.

She's worn it all winter(s) in NE Scotland with no problems.

Agree. Definitely worth it. DD1 is 6 and is still in her 3-4 one bought in the sale 3 years ago. She's got a 5-6 in the cupboard, again bought in the sale but probably won't need it until winter next year.

I got them for DTs last year and was horrified, the other day, to notice that DT1s might be getting a bit short on the arms. Don't like the colours as much this year so am hoping to get away with it and replace both is time next year. They have been a fab purchase and will sell well on eBay (have just discovered the delights of eBaying girls Boden clothes - its madness!!).

I got the blue flowery one, it is very dd2, I had bought vertbaudet coats in the sales last year for this year but dd2's has died, zip snapped off and all the tags that hold the fleece in it broken, strangley dd1's seems ok, will keep it as a spare as the poppers still do up.

The blue flowery colour is nicest Dita - I've got a little girl who is purple crazy just now which makes life just a tad difficult!!
